Christmas Cookies that are healthy!

5 Healthy Christmas Cookies Options It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Now, and May when the snow finally melts.  And October when pumpkin spice everything abounds…so it’s one of the most wonderful times of the year.  This time of year I like 2 things: traditions and all things Christmas. One of my favorite traditions is to make Christmas cookies for friends and neighbors.  Our old neighbors used to return the favor by passing our New Year’s cookies the next week.  I love packing up baskets and tins and walking around with the kids to say “Merry Christmas” to those that live near us.  …

Winter Running

Sara
How to succeed at winter running So, you’ve started running and you’ve finally started to enjoy it.  Then, the weather changes.  The thermometer drops and the snow comes (can you tell I live in the midwest), and its dark when you get up and when you get off of work.  Then all that I want to do is stay inside and eat. Since exercise increases endorphins and generally lifts ones mood it’s a great way to combat the winter blues.  Exercise is also a great way to stay in shape and maintain the progress that you’ve made all summer. I grew up in the great winter tundra of Upper Michigan.  …

Weighted Workout Ball

Sara
Make Your Own weighted ball I love lifting heavy weights. Strength training  and HIIT (High Intensity interval Training) produce the fastest results for me.  Since I am on a break from bootcamp, I have slept in! I can’t believe it either.  This means that I have to fit in my workouts while the boys “rest” in the afternoon.  Studies show that people who workout first thing in the morning are the most consistent over the long haul.  People that workout in the afternoon exert themselves more during the workout, maybe it’s because they are awake.  Who knows? Anyway, all of my explanation to say that I have working out at home.  …
